Balance Marks SU's 19 Player Grid Recruiting Class

Head Coach Dino Babers welcomed 19 new members to the Syracuse football program on Wednesday.

The class was split up with 11 offensive players and eight defensive players.

Offensive line was the position which Syracuse targeted the most, signing five players - including the class' top-ranked offensive player in four-star Enrique Cruz.

In addition to Cruz, a Chicago native, Syracuse added two more linemen from the Midwest, in Wes Hoeh (Illinois) and Tyler Magnuson (Minnesota) and a pair of Hawaiians in Kalan Ellis and Austyn Kauhi.

One player in particular who's set to benefit from the offensive line presence is QB Justin Lamson. The only quarterback in the class, Lamson comes to 'Cuse from California.

There are also some weapons in the class, including running back Josh Hough

'Cuse also added three wideouts, Umari Hatcher (Virginia), Oronde Gadsden II (Florida) and Kendall Long (South Carolina), plus tight end Landon Morris (Indiana)

The Orange also addressed the other side of the trenches, adding three defensive linemen in Jatius Greer (South Carolina), Elijah Fuentes-Cundiff (New York) and Terry Lockett (Massachusetts).

Behind them is a trio of linebackers, Austin Roon (Michigan), Derek McDonald (Georgia) and Malik Matthew (New York)

In the back of the defense, Darian Chestnut (New Jersey), aka Duce, is the highest-rated defensive player in the class, tabbed at four stars by Rivals. Malcolm Folk (Pennsylvania) joins him as the other DB in the class.
